Held every two years, the Cannonball Run is a cross-country challenge for the world’s oldest motorcycles. Its namesake is Erwin “Cannonball” Baker. In 1913, he plodded through heat, exhaustion, and the expanse of this country on a ride from San Diego to New York. He made it in 11 days, 12 hours, and 10 minutes on a two speed Indian. Today, the challenge continues, but in the opposite direction.
